A photographic autograph postcard after an original taken by JW Barker from RMS Carpathia, with survivors. Our research uncovered that the photographer, J.W. Barker was a passenger on board Carpathia, and gave the photograph to John McQuair, a waiter on board the Carpathia, who subsequently mailed it home to his family in the form of a postcard. This type of research uncovering connections authenticates such items and provides excellent provenance for collectors. It achieved a healthy £820. Without such time consuming research and expertise the price achieved at auction would have been significantly less.
